PURPOSE OF
UNITED METHODIST WOMEN

United Methodist Women (UMW) is the largest denominational faith organization for women, with approximately 800,000 members whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of  mission through participation in global ministries.
MUNHOLLAND UMW IS OPEN TO ALL WOMEN WITHIN AND OUTSIDE MUNHOLLAND 
We are:
- Centered in relationship with God through 
  Jesus Christ
- Focused on ministries with women, children &           youth 
- Involved in mission locally and globally
- Committed to inclusiveness 

 Our UMW  has two sub-groups, or circles.  Hope Circle meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00   pm and Day Circle meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month at 10:00 am.  Both circles meet in Munholland's Fellowship Hall and each focus on ministries inside and outside Munholland.  

Each year on the last Saturday of September we hold our White Elephant Sale.  This event generates funding for our support of mission locally and globally.  Local organizations we support include the following: North Rampart Community Center in New Orleans, Clanton Chapel Christian Pre-school in Dulac, LAMethodist children's homes in Mandeville, Houma & Ruston, St. Mark's & Mt. Zion Meal Ministries,  Hope Lodge that provides accommodations for out-of-town cancer patientsEden House, Hager House, Community Christian Concern , Angel's Place, Camp Istrouma ,  Tulane & Grambling Campus Ministries, Operation Christmas Child , and Munholland Youth Mission Trips.

Globally, we support Hope for Haitian Children's Foundation as well as providing scholarships for deserving students at Warne Baby Fold, a Methodist orphanage in Bareilly, India.  Additionally, as we learn of specific needs, we provide assistance to Methodist missionaries around the world.  In return for our commitment of time, energy and effort, we develop a deeper understanding of mission, grow spiritually and are sustained by the knowledge that we are making a difference in the lives of men, women, children and youth here in our church, our area and around the world.  

If you are looking for a way to serve God and be a part of something greater than yourself and enjoy the company of other like-minded women, we invite you to join with us.  Life is meant to be lived in community and we welcome you to ours!

Carol Ruholl, President
